Slip & Fall Attorney in Clarksville
Were You Injured on Someone Else's Property?
When a property owner invites the public onto his or her property, there is a duty to keep the property safe. If the property owner fails to do so and someone is injured, that person should be compensated for the injuries he or she suffered.
If you were hurt on someone else's property, you may have a claim for compensation. At Pete Olson Injury Attorneys, we can investigate the facts of your case and identify if any failings caused your injuries.
Some common types of slip-and-fall accidents involve:
- Grocery stores, restaurants, or home improvement stores
- Falls on uneven walkways or parking lots
- Falls in dark or poorly maintained stairways or hallways
- Workplace accidents caused by a third party's failure to maintain safe premises indoors or outdoors
Landowner Negligence in Tennessee
The success of a slip and fall claim is based on the plaintiff's ability to prove that the landowner allowed a dangerous condition to persist on their property without fixing it or providing adequate warning to visitors about its existence. Tennessee slip and fall claims must be able to satisfy these elements:
- The landowner reasonably should have known of the dangerous condition
- The landowner knew of the condition but failed to repair or remedy it
- The landowner intentionally caused the dangerous condition
Often, people may feel that their injuries were in some way their fault. This prevents them from seeking legal assistance. At a minimum, you deserve to know whether your injuries could have been prevented. If we discover that a lack of maintenance was a factor in your case, we can build a strong case that clearly shows how your injuries were caused by the property owner's negligence.
Damages Available to Slip & Fall Victims
Victims of slip and fall accidents in Tennessee can recover compensation for a wide range of economic and non-economic damages, including:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages and other income
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
Additional punitive damages may be awarded in rare circumstances where the defendant acted with particularly extreme recklessness or intentional disregard for the safety of others. Our attorneys can review your case and help you pursue a settlement or jury award that compensates you for the full value of your injuries.
